1. TMobile never sold the 8300, that is correct.
2. There is no TMobile 8300 OS. However, an 8300 will work fine on TMobile if unlocked, regardless of brand. The OS will install to the device according to the brand, not the carrier the device is being used on.
3. You can NEVER get rid of the AT&T startup and shutdown logos, even if there was a TMobile released OS. The "sell me stuff" icons are service books which can be deleted. If they show back up again, just hide the icons. They take almost no memory space.
4. All the OS's for a particular device are the same. However, they install differently based on the vendor coding on each BB. For example, the same OS will install differently on a TMobile 8320 and a Rogers 8320. Editing the Blackberry.alx file allows you to install the OS to your device as you wish, not as the carrier wished.
Yes, you can put ANY like device's OS on any carrier's device. It will load to the device based on the brand of device you're loading it to.
